New in the Shop: The August 2019 HaldeCrate

Pre-orders shipped today, and that means that extras of the August HaldeCrate, Cats and Dogs, are now available.

As I write this, there are two mugs, five coaster sets, three magnet sets, seven soap and lotion sets, and two of almost every base yarn.

The mugs are that fun, organic folded-box style, with a good sturdy handle. The design is just a little bit different on each side, according to how the clay was rolled out. Approximate Height: 3.5 inches; Approximate Width: 3.25 x 3.25 inches (at lip); Approximate Weight: 15 ounces; Holds Approximately: 16 ounces

Coasters come in a set of four, and again, the design is randomly placed. Approximate Width; 3 inches across; Approximate Weight: 3 oz each

Magnets come in a set of five, and will have different cat and dog pairs on them. The magnets are great quality, sturdy, and can hold a few pieces of paper, or a couple of postcards or photographs.

This soap and lotion set is fantastic. The soap is called “Puppy Kisses” and it’s like almond milk and a little bit of sea salt. The hand lotion is called “Kitten Purrs” and it’s a little fruity, a little floral. The lip balm was supposed to be called “Sweet Snuggles” and tastes like buttered biscuits, but there was a misprint and it actually got named “Buttered Biscuits”. So if it seems like an outlier… whoops! Best laid plans….!
